Martha Wentworth started her new position as Indiana Tax Court judge this week.
The Tax Court announced Wednesday on its website that Judge Wentworth took office Jan. 17. Because state courts were closed Monday in observance of Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, she didn’t begin her official duties until Tuesday. Judge Wentworth said she has been wrapping up her tax practice with Deloitte Tax LLP in the weeks since the governor appointed her Dec. 22.
Judge Wentworth said she’s still getting settled in and will attend courses next week for new judges.
She is the state’s second Tax Court judge. Judge Thomas Fisher, who will retire this month, was appointed the first Tax Court judge after the office’s creation in 1986 by the Indiana General Assembly.
Her formal robing ceremony will be at 10:30 a.m. March 8 in the Indiana Supreme Court courtroom. More details about the ceremony will be released when available.
